Excellent Hotel and Service. We were greeted with a big smile from the front desk staff - that was the start of a wonderful 24 hour stay at the Halifax Courtyard! The hotels staff were friendly but professional and very helpful - they looked and sounded like they really enjoy their work. The hotel and our room were spotlessly clean.... More

We visited Halifax in May and stayed in the Courtyard Halifax Downtown. Located right on the harbour, this hotel is in easy walking distance of the immigration museum and the main harbour area. The staff were very pleasant - very friendly and welcoming. The airport shuttle bus stops right outside the hotel, so it is easy to get too and... More

Great location right at the harbor. We watched the Canada Day fireworks over the harbor from their nice rooftop deck. Clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Breakfast service a little slow but otherwise employees seem attentive and eager to please.

What can I say? I spent 38 straight days at this hotel and loved every minute of it. The staff are very friendly and very very helpful. The hotel is in immaculate shape, very clean and very centrally located in the heart of downtown Halifax. The food is great as I ate breakfast every morning in the restaurant. There are... More

You can't beat the location of this property. It's right near the waterfront, and if you don't mind walking up hill, you can get to the Citadel and the shops and restaurants on Spring Garden Road in no time. It's also about a mile from Point Pleasant Park, so we would walk down there and run on the trails each... More

I stayed for one night only at the Courtyard Halifax Downtown. I was not in my room very long, but the room was amazingly clean, which delights me to no end. The room was beautiful, the quality of the linens and towels was just lovely. The staff were pleasant and attentive to customer needs, quite nice. AND they all seemed... More

Great location. Lots of restaurants near by. Has valet parking did not mind it since finding a parking spot in Halifax could be difficult. Negative: breakfast not included in price; pool area not appealing Tip: check out the rooftop terrace for beautiful views

I'm a regular at the Courtyard and stay there when I do my annual business travel to Halifax. Its a nice hotel, staff are very helpful and pleasant and most important - efficient. The location is brilliant and its almost on the Harbour. The Alexander Keiths Brewery, the Atlantic Museum and many restaurants are short walks away. The staff at... More

We stayed at the Courtyard Halifax Downtown in March 2012. The rooms were large and comfortable and not overpriced. The hotel is well located and you can walk to many restaurants near by. I would recommend the Five Fisherman and Cut Grill and Steakhouse but there are also many pubs. Its also worth mentioning that the people of Halifax, especially... More
